Testimonial – Combined Martial Arts Little Tigers Early Learning & Character Development Program

Feedback from one of our Little Tiger’s mother. Oliver has been a part of the CMA Family for over 12 months now and will be graduating from the Little Tigers program after his next grading. This is what his mother has to say:
“Since Oliver joined Combined Martial Arts, we have observed a positive development in Oliver’s behaviour. He is very attentive to others and shows an increased awareness of safe play. He is often heard to be telling other children not to fight and not to bully. He shows an incredible amount of respect to us (his parents) and his friends and family; this makes us very proud as parents. I do believe that Combined Martial Arts has played a huge role in this, and has been essential to his development.
I just want to thank Bill Wakefield and the Instructors at Combined Martial Arts for doing an amazing job with my child!”

Pairing with one of his students, Ozkan Ismail, they have now made quite an impression the video sharing platform ‘Youtube’, through their Martial Arts and Tricking videos.

“Originally we decided to post them up just to showcase our skills and how we went at competitions. We started receiving lots of comments to post more videos up, so we kept doing what we loved.” Kosta explained.

With 6 videos featured on their producers page, ‘OffTap Productions’ the views have begun to sky rocket with recent videos combining to a total over 100,000 views in their first month.

“It is so exciting seeing how far we have come. I love Martial Arts and can’t wait to see where it takes us in the future.” Says Ozkan.

Ozkan has also traveled Australia and taken out numerous State, National and World titles for Extreme Weapons and Extreme Forms.

Recently, both Kosta and Ozkan have been approached by producers to feature in music film clips for both ‘Justice Crew’ and X Factor finalists, ‘Fourtunate’.

“They are able to offer a new level of skill and raise the intensity in the breakdown for our film clip. As soon as we saw the boys online we knew we wanted them to feature in our clip.” Fourtunates PR Manager, Emily Dodd explained.

Kosta is also the Martial Arts school owner of the well-known gym, KMA Wollongong.
